Viewing problem

Postby SA007 » 23. December 2009 15:54

Well, in local host I can view it fine, but i have set it up so my router IP from external computers will redirect to my laptop's localhost.

However, external computers get an error saying computers out of my home network can't view my laptops localhost as permissons set in httpd-xampp.conf block them. It also says at the top #New Security Concept#

Please can I have help in how to edit the permissions so selected IP address can access my localhost through my router ip.

In which directory have you stored your own html/php files?

In .hdocs there is the index file saying it works. I can get that, but anyone outside my home network gets this error:

Access forbidden!

New XAMPP security concept:

Access to the requested directory is only available from the local network.

This setting can be configured in the file "httpd-xampp.conf".

If you think this is a server error, please contact the webmaster.

Error 403

In your htdocs folder there should be 2 index files index.html which gives you the It Works! message and the other is the index.php file which redirects to a restricted folder htdocs\xampp.

So delete or rename both the index.php and the index.html files so they don't come into play, then replace with your own index.php or index.html file or put your web site files in the htdocs folder and things should work fine.

Then to get, once again, to the restricted XAMPP Welcome Demo Page simply type http://localhost/xampp/index.php in your browser.

This is the new security concept \xampp\apache\conf\extra\httpd-xampp.conf file kicking in which will only allow local users to access the restricted folders on your XAMPP installation for obvious reasons - you don't want everyone to have access to these sensitive files and folders to be able to do untold damage.
